All survive 100 Mile House plane crash
Jun 10, 2012 / 8:36 am
Three people are lucky to be alive after a Cessna 172 crashed into a building in the community of 100 Mile House, say police.
RCMP Cst. Lesley Smith said the incident took place around 3:45 p.m. Saturday, and the occupants have now been treated in hospital for non-life threatening injuries and been released.
"This could have been a tragic event, but at this time we only have the three people on board that suffered injuries and they were minor in nature," said Smith.
Jackie McDonald told a Kamloops radio station that she was outside her place of work when she saw the plane hit some wires across the highway, smash into a sign, lose a wing and skid across a parking lot into a building.
She said one of the occupants was covered in blood.
Smith said she doesn't know the ages of the occupants and the wreckage is now being cleaned up.
Smith said the Transportation Safety Board is investigating.
